I love smoothies. That being said I rarely make them at home. And by rarely I mean never. Usually I see a smoothie recipe that looks good, but the ingredient list is impossible. Long lists of healthy fruits and yogurts and vitamins equals a hefty price tag. I never saw the point. That is until a friend of mine, Miss Molly, told me about a quick and easy smoothie. Literally 3 (maybe 4) ingredients.

Here’s all you’ll need:

  • 1 cup yogurt (I used greek non-fat yogurt)
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup low-fat milk (optional)

Simply combine all the first 3 ingredients in a blender.

Blend away!

Here you can use the milk to loosen the smoothie up because it is pretty thick. I’ve tried it with and without milk and they’re equally delicious. Once blended, pour and enjoy the healthy benefits.

  1. Have you ever had just an avocado smoothie? It’s also really good and even less ingredients! :)

    For a one serving smoothie:
    1. 1/2 Avocado
    2. 1 1/2 or so Milk (I like my non-fat, but I use soy for B), 1/2&1/2, or I’ve even used flax milk (I’m sure you can use any kind of milk/thin yogurt) — depending on how thick/creamy/runny you like your drink
    3. 1-2 Tbsp Honey or agave nectar for health nuts and simple syrup for “cheaper”/unhealthier version — once again, depending on your personal taste

    Add all the ingredients and blend away. :)

    Variations (and I’ve tried/like ’em as well, but I usually like my avo smoothie simple):
    1. Phrough/Bali’s version has chocolate syrup in it.
    2. Instead of honey/agave/syrup, put a ripe banana, blue or blackberries and some (like 2-4) kale leaves for a SUPER healthy smoothie (others have mentioned spinach are less potent than kale but I haven’t tried it myself).

    Enjoy!

  2. Or … I just remembered another simple one — this is my recent go-to when I don’t have ice cream on hand or want a healthier treat …

    1. 1/2 cup frozen mango
    2. 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
    3. Enough juice to make the blender go (I’ve tried mango, peach, guava … haven’t tried OJ/grapefruit because they give me heartburn right now, but I’m sure they’re good too)

    THAT. IS. IT. 😀
